OpenDP Summer Internship

 

The OpenDP Project at Harvard University seeks to hire interns for summer or term-time work. 

OpenDP is a community effort to build trustworthy, open-source software tools for statistical analysis of sensitive private data. OpenDP will offer the rigorous protections of differential privacy for individuals who may be represented in confidential data and statistically valid methods of analysis for researchers who study the data.

OpenDP interns may be undergraduate, post-bacc, or graduate students.  The dates of the Summer 2023 program are June 5th to August 12th.  It is preferred that students join full time and in person for the full 10-week program, but there are also options for part-time, remote, and/or term-time work.  There are a limited number of paid internship positions, so students who can apply for their own summer research funding are encouraged to do so and indicate it in their application. Harvard undergraduates should review sources of funding from the College.

Some past OpenDP internships have led to published research papers or senior theses; interns who are interested in a research-oriented internships should indicate that on their application, and we will try to develop a project with a research component. Applicants will also be considered for internships in the broader Privacy Tools Project.

Applicants should send a CV/Resume, transcript, and 2-3 references' contact information to Privacytools-info@seas.harvard.edu. Those undergraduates interested in summer internships should also apply to the SEAS REU site.

Application deadline: March 10
